WWE Touts SmackDown Rating, WWE’s Big Plans for Canada

– WWE is touting the SmackDown rating for their MyNetwork TV debut with the following: This past Friday, SmackDown exploded onto MyNetwork TV, earning an astonishing 2.3 Nielsen rating for the show’s All Star Kick-Off premiere, breaking the record for the highest-rated show in the history of the network and scoring over 200 percent higher ratings than the network did at the same time last year. The dynamic, new tag team combination of WWE and MyNetwork TV has quickly taken Friday nights by storm. Friday night’s new biggest duo scored a monumental victory in the ultra-competitive television standings by once again proving its championship caliber, and besting their competition in drawing over 33 percent more in the much-coveted male 18-34 demographic.

– Carl DeMarco, president of the Canadian arm of World Wrestling Entertainment, says WWE has big plans for Canada. WWE will be holding two shows in Ontario in December, as well as next May, while the rest of Canada gets nothing. Regarding this, DeMarco said, “It’s not going to happen in 2008, but we’re looking at booking opportunities for 2009. As far as future TV shows and pay-per-views in Canada, I’d say there’s a real good chance for next year.” He also added, “We clearly recognize that Alberta has a great wrestling following and tradition, but it’s not just Edmonton and Calgary. Winnipeg, the home of , is a great place. And we could go to Vancouver or Victoria.”
